"The Sourcebook of Contemporary Urban Design" is the first large-scale book of its kind to showcase a complete and diverse range of urban architectural innovations worldwide. The more than 300 case studies presented across 600 pages incorporate a diversity of urban space projects, indoor and outdoor, making this lushly illustrated, information-rich book an invaluable resource that architects, architectural students, and urban planners will turn to again and again. Each case study includes a succinct description of the project at hand, listing its name, client, and location, and presenting its unique objectives, challenges, and solutions. Every one also features numerous full-color photographs and detailed renderings of site and floor plans. Finally, each case study provides a full listing of the key creators involved in the project: the design firm and its participating architects, engineers, consultants, and contractors.
